I’ve been trying to find a DR/surgeon who believes I have a hernia, but because they can’t see a noticeable bulge none of them believe me. The pain has been excruciating for the past 8 months. I have all the tell-tale symptoms, plus photos of the bulge in my upper abdomen and one to the side of it. At this point Because the hernias didn’t show up on an ultrasound, they don’t believe me and today I was told to put Icy-Hot on the site to help with the pain.
At this point I feel so hopeless. I can’t go on with this much pain, but I don’t know where to turn. I’m located in Oregon, but am willing to travel to see someone who will believe me. 🙁 Any suggestions?
“A sports hernia is a strain or tear of any soft tissue (muscle, tendon, ligament) in the lower abdomen or groin area. Because different tissues may be affected and a traditional hernia may not exist, the medical community prefers the term “athletic pubalgia” to refer to this type of injury”
